I'HE T'RUE AMERICAN. IDITIsRD a Joa.s anIIeNON. FAITarU L AND BOLD. NEW OR OLEANM1: SATURUAY...SEPTEMBER 29, I t1: MR. CALDWELL'S STATEMENT. Aoswere to the Report in favor of Round Pavements. Fiates Citieens-It is generally known that I *1he ve t bn ath a senuous hdvoeate for changing L!Zi' meader, end material, of our present pave. mentsi but my reasons forse doing are not equally public, for while every sophistry which the up. holders of tbhings as they are, and abuses as they exist, has been extensively, and officially promul. gated, I have been entirely shut out from urging lmy own position, or replying to theirs. The following facts, and arguments, are intend. ed as anewers to the report made by the majority of the Committee on Streets and Landings, and would not have appeared in this unofficial form had an opportunity been afforded me of presenting them through the sanction of the Municipal Council. I have long been convinced that round stone pavmrents in this city, are ohnoxious to every spe. nies of eetnure,-as entravagant, inconvenient, in jurious, noisy, dirty and indirectly onerous in the extreme, to every cit seal and having attentively examined the subject,-h-aving carefully weighed theexperience, and practice, of every enlightened eommunity, and eareful'y reflected on every at tempt at proof offered in defence of this style of pavement by its advocates here, I cannot find any reason for a change ofopinion, nor evet the slight. eat resemblance of an argument in all the sophir try used in its support. I naturally feel asoe ast sumnee that my oplnion cannot be very incorrect, au the autlhorities in Now York, Philadelphti, Bts ton, Baltimore, and all the large cities, are explo. ding this very pavement as worse than useless, end adopting one of blocks of stone, or wood, in itsstead: and while sell ia the ease, I cannot hbut foul that thereis soen ground work for the sneers ofdistant follow citizens that the enterprisilg in. habitants of New Orlenna are behind the intelli guces of the age, since t'y nre seen perpetuating thatahLmse which the enlightened of every city in Europe, or America, arel iscarding as one utterly worUlleses. I do, indeed, dissent in toto from the opinions of the majority of the committee of streets and land. lngs, and influenced by the presnt patriotism, and a just sense of the duty owing to my constituents, 1 make this one more effort in favor of what I deem the cause of the People, and of Truth. I do strongly object to continuing the contract with Mr. Minturn tbr round stone, or pebble pave. mien, at n3 50 per square yard; because, in the first place, I conacientiosaly believe it the worst that can be used; and, in the second place, because, if in de. Sane. of reason, and the wishes of the people, round stone pavement is to be used, justice to these who delegated the Cnuncil, imperatively demands that the lowest offer should be aceepted:tthet their money shall not be uselessly, and doubly squander ed, ntemerely to continue an old abuse in the same hands, but that the proposal of Owen Cook to conn tract for the same at f3 per square yard should be accepted. If pebble pavement is to be forced on the community, why is any particular individual to be allowed nearly fifteen per cent, more than an other will take? Thedifference of opinion between the majori. ty of the Streets and Landings committee anti my selfen the subject of Mr. Minturn's contract, is thie:-I wish to adhere to Mr. Minturn's own offer to pave five thousand yards of cubic blocks at h4 50. and twenty thousand more at cut, without a sent of profit, and for the benefit of the municipality, on condition of a contract for 20,000 square yards of round stonee.-The majori. ty havoe changed this contranet, allowing Mr. Mmn. turnfiftey thousand yards of pebble pavement, and permitttig hrim to throw up hii offer to lpave 25,. 000 yards ef cubic blocks, at coat, if be finds it unprofitable on furnishing 5,000. Bfure ogoing into the rclative merits of round, and square stones, for the purpose of paving, I beg distinstly to state that the pavement made by the present contractor, is tile very worst sort of this very worst pavement.--'Thle only pirincipie on whiolh pebble pureeint can be made to be tolerable, is in olaerving utniformity it thie sizes of the stones, a proved ill Philadellhlia, and other cities, where every one has to pass through a four, six, or eight inch ring, as thle case tmy be: whereas in New Or leans, stones varying from 3 inches, to !4, are pro. miscuoualy thrown togethb.r, and by their incon gruous forms and sizes, cause us every evil to which pavement call be liable. My only olbjeet-my only wish, is to follow the example ofeverv enlightened cormmunity: to pire. vent the city of'New Orleans from falling in the rear of any in the march of itprovementv, and I would therefoe abolish the justly discarded round stone pavement, and adopt in its stead one formed of cubtic blocks of granite, or iaxagonal blocks of wood; the foIbrmer to be pla, ed in the businesa thoroughfares,-the latter in the non.commercial streets. My reasons are many, and obvious. Block pavements can be procured as fast as re. quired to meet the views, and wishes, of the eiti mene. four responsible parties having offered to contract for 24,000 yards mare ofsquare stones, an. noally, than has been hitherto used of tround; and thus, if permitted, every street in the taxable limits of the municipality can be durably paved, and in less time than now occupied in laying pebbles that are hourly breaking up. are nourty Dreating up. So far from reoad stone pavement being cheap. or than granite blocks, I am now perfectly prepared to prove it to be for more expensive, nay, that were it removed, and abolishod, entirely, the direct and indirect taues that would be saved to the community, would in three years, more than pay the entire expenses of the new, square, pave ments. The contract price with Mr. Minturn for pebbles, is $3 50 per equere yard, laid downe,,-the contraetors for the granite blocks offer to bring them to the Leve.~at the same price, which to fin ish and complete, in every way, would cost 75 ers. per yard in addition. This pavoml when once put down, would last for half a century, while round stone pavements are daily out of repair. ThJ tor, Mr. Mintura, elrging 9 cents per foot and the council finding all tht ilaterials; the entire ro. penaes of which might be sared, as evry portion ofa block paveument can be used ase1 crossing place. The estimate of only one per cent, for repairing pebble pavement, is anl utter fallacy. The *en. tract for r.epairs last year was $9,100:-for this year it is $4,800S-within two years Gravier street, troam Tehlopitoulse st. to near Baronu street, has been entirely rolaid at a cost of 815,000: atnd St. Charles st. also, front Graver to Common at., at charge ofg5000 more. What are these but repairs? The entire of Now Levee munet be immediately re. laid, and will cost about $156,000, although not ever an average of five years in wear, and con. etantly undergoing some anaendmente! Are cot ouch large additional outlays to be charged to re pairs? If this amount expunded in about two years and a half, be taken as a criterion, all the round stone paainments will be renewed in about 7 years; and as the contractor receives .2 07 for relay. ing, every square yard ol round stant pavement in the courso of 50 years will cost $16 00 besides the rate of 8 per cont (exclusive of the re-lay of New I eves,)for ordinary rupaars,us proved by the d35 0110 paid in. the Iaut two years, to the contractors for repairing and relaying these pebbles: while granite bloeks at an original cost of 4 25, will endure the half century through, without more than a half per cent. per annum, tir repairs even by tes ertimate of their vehement opponents. Nor is it, by any means, certain that granite could not be procured even at a less price, if the CeGseil seould pu6licly adoertise for proposals and give time four ingk'25 or 30 year. to run,it is scarceiy worth combat. ling tise objection of the majority of the said coai. miitee,that the City cannot atford to pay for a larger priced article, since long before tlhose bonds ma. tore, the difference will boe ore than ten times sa. red in the item of repairs alone. That the nature of our soil is unfavorable for stone pavements is correct ; but it is not tree that it is alike so for round, or square. The latter, by its compactness and solidity, tforms an arch that presents an almost imlnnoveible resistance tothe traffic upon it: whilst the other, by its very form, admits the rain to saturate the soil beneath, and must anevitably give way to any heavy load that pusse over: and, besides, tile arch of the round stone pavement when once broken either by commerce, or the gas or water coapanies, can noe. c or be relaid as it was, for notling Jess than an en- Is tire repavement cane restore it; whereas, the square lt stone pavement can be taken up with nopunity, ftr oe any under ground purposes, and relaid truo a single stone to the whole breath of the arch, with th out injury to any part of it. 'I'le duration of the of round stone in our foIbrmer streets, when little or no commeiree was passing thro' them, is no criterion of its efficacy now : nor can illustrations drawn oP frotm the rock based, sea shore towns, of the east ern states, bear any resemblance to its circum- st h atanees here. 0m Thourbh it is thus doubly evident that, even in iha ito direct eomts for making and repairing, the round ill stone ptavrmnt is more,-for more onerous to the citizona, than one of cubic rstlo, or h)exagonal I:. woodeould be, it is stall more obnoxious from its Loa, enormaoas amount of indirect tuxatign. It may i.1. be a startling eioauneement, yet at ans ao less ee. ilia pable of proof, that theseo ,mlnaret taxes brought on th.e citinone of New Orleans by thexistlen2e of round stone pavement,aro over 2 millions ofdollars annually ! This enormous amount is formed of a varietyM'fexpenses, damages, and losses, contingent upon tile present style of pavement; and of the savings that would occur from the use of cubic stone, or hexagonal blockn of wood. fly the records in the Mayor's office there are now 2176 licensed drays and carts; and 121 public hacks. These 2176 carts and drays, costing $50 each, over tite round stone pavement Inst only an average of two years: whereas over a smooth road their duration would be 10, agreably to the opinion of experienced men; the consequent loss o the ci. tizens is, therefore, in this item alone $43,520 an. nually. The 121 hacks, at an average value of $1000, now run about 3 years, though competent to endure 9;-the difference to owners is, therefore $26,889 a year. For these carte, hacks, and drays, there must be at least 2418 horses, allowing only one to each dray,and two to every ha.k:these,at a. average value of 8130cost $314,340, and, though capable of labor 12 years are new worn out in two: the diffe'rence thlerefur, to the citizens, is 8131,975 annually. At a moderate calculation there are in the city 160 private carriages, and 351 barouches, wagons, gigs and other pleasure vehicles The cost of the former being about $1000 eash, when complete, and of the latter at oeat O300 seach, their aggregate value is $265,0001 and it to this be added the price of 1000private horses, used for rid. ing, or driving, at the moderate estimate of $300 each, it gives an amount vested in private car. riages &e. of $565,000. Now making an allow. anoe of 10 per cent., upon this sum for the con. stant breakage, and wear, and tear, upon carriages and harness; of accidents, and frequent lameness of the horses on rough pavements, more than would arriee on smooth, and there is another annual, and indirect tax of 856,500. The difference in shoes for these 3118 horses would be $12 each, yearly. amounting to d41,016 and from the very snperior cleanliness of smooth pavements, about $30,000 might be saved from the sum now paid every year for keeping the rough streets in order. Nearly all the inconvenience arising from mud, dust,or noise, would hi also avoided, were the whole of our streets paved,either with wood or granite; and over which horses could de, at least, a third more work, and yet improve their condition. Thie list of indirect taxes, arising from round stone pavement, doea not include one 10th part of every thing, and yet it shows an amount of £329,900. But the tax of all is 'drayage'. 'his charge, so onerous to our commerce, so pro. vsrbially exorbitant in this city, and felt by every individual in it,-c-itizen or stranger,--amounts to so vast a sum as to startle any one who makes a calculation of it.As its present high price evidently arises from the snparallelled destruction of horses and vehicles, consequent on our reugh and defee. tire pavements, it is but fair to calculate on a di. minution of one half, if smooth surfaces were adopted; since cattle could then do at least a third, if not a half more work; they would live five times their present duration, and at a greatly diminis'ed expense in shoes, harness, &c. &o. It is admitted by the owners of numerous drays that their weekly receipts average $30, or $1560 yearly, for each of these 2176 drays and carte, thus making the annual amount expended in draying $3,384,5611. Nor can this estimate be deemed extravagant, when it is re. membered that all articles of produce, or import, average three drayages at 3 bits each, and that, independently of all drygoods, &c. a few items of our receipts of produce as given in the Price Cur. rent, show the following enormous quantity of articles carried to and fro' in drays and carts,and the corresponding amount in the charges. The last years receipts of produce, shew 740,000 bales of cotton, 320,000 barrels flour, 300.000 pigo of lead, 220,000 kegs of lard, 100,000 barrels of coal, 50,000 bblls of whiskey, 40,000 hogsheads of tobacco, besides kegs, boxes, barrels and bales of do: 20,000 bundles ofhny, 150,000 harrels of pork, besides pork in bulk, of which last year there was 9 millions of ponnde, 30,000 barrels oats, 270,000 barrels and 360,000 casks of corn. These are but a few of 'our vast imports; and a soaing of but one half of theirentire drayage world be at least million and o half of dollars in tihe pockets of the people. Take for example these few items: 740,000 bales of cotton at 4 to the load $208,125 320,000 bbls. flour at 8 do 45,000 300,000 pigs lead "25 do 13,500 2'21,000 kegs lard " 10 do 24,750 100,000 bbls coal " 5 do 28,125 50,000 bbin whiskey, " 4 do 14,062 40,000 hogeds tobacco " 1 do 45,000 20,000 bundles hay " 4 do 5,625 150,000 bbls pork " 5 do 33,750 30,000 hbis oats " 8 do 4,209 630,000 bbls and casks corn 6 do 118,125 180,000 caeks corn 10 do 20,250 9.000,000 Ibs pork in bulk, 1000 lbs 10,125 10,000 families: 2 loads weeod per week,2 dray ages each 780,000 Or. These are but a very feow o the numorous items pro. shown in the list of the receipts of produce given on- in thie olicial statistics, and even they lehave out of lich of view all the large supplies of'bricks, granite, lumber, aines, liquors, furniture, hardware and do. the metei suppllies of all sorts. Of iron and all articles pre- of hardware there are imported 50,000 tons, at the 1120 Ibe t the load, and two drlynages of tlhem at nd I 4 bitts a loand, this item alone swells the amount and of yearly drayage $50,0011. These 15 items llhow. rmod ing an amount expended in draynge of one million a of and four hundred thousand dollars are only given oess to prove the whole amount of the year's drayago is cial not exaggerated From the reasons previously given of the increased duration and diminished ex re. penses of horses, carriages, drays, narts, &c. &c., :iti it is fair to presumre that over smlooth pavement this to work of' dlayage, carrage &c. could be done at one an. half of its present coast, namely $1,700,000 which and added to tle saving in hacks, drays, horsies, &., nitsa both public and private of $329,000, as previously in shown, would save the community an indirect taxa. hat tioes of two mllions twenty nine thllousand and nine hundred dollars annually. ap. A specious argument is used by tire advocates of Ltly immediate pavement with round stones, tlhat streets ay, in which property is worth $500 per running foot, the should have prelbrenco of those worth apparently red less money, and on this principle trhe petitions to ran pave the back part of the 1st and 2d ward are re- treated with utter contempt, and tihe resolution for carried to pave Magazine street, in the third ward, the up to the municipal lino.-Whoro is the justice in ng this? With a third less population, and not a rhun. -. drodth part of the buildings going oi, tihe third ts. ward has already had $116,172 9d laid out in iee pavement, and a resolution passed to expend $75,. rile 000 more, besides $8,982 95 paid for gunwale 'hI pavements, making together $200,154 95; whileo .e- the first ward with its greater number of tax payers, rnd and over 300 new buildings going up, hasahad only cx. $74.740 i62 expended in its pavements, and has tile on petit on of its citizens to a fairer particlllation, ng treated'with uritiaguised contempt. But even were the principle correct that the ng must Wiluahle late should claim a preference, tile an. estimate h whiel)this right is claimed for Maga. hi llzme street is utterly .tslicious, for from Delord at et, to tire city line, the aveTage value of lots does riot sns exceed $200 per running flot: But oar the score St. of trade, population, and growing improvement a tie favored Magazine street is greatly inferior'to rs? those back portions of the let and 2d wards where re. the thickly clustering citizens call aloud ftr their rot fair share o!'public improvements. In the neglect ed atreerts of the let ward alone, besaes air already rot drnhely settled population, there are between two re. and three hundred buildings now erecting, or just are completed: while an the eleven squares ofa Maga. nid ine street destined to be paved at an expense of rs; $73,000, there are but 63 housesin existence, not ay. onre of greater value than $30 per month! only two in buildinga going up, and tour squares un sneraed he and unnaproved! The banquettes are formed only on 5w one nie e of the street, and not a living soul is to 110 be seen on many consecutive equares. Yet this lor uninhabited street sa to be paved ansd the busy lest ite ward neglected! Is this justice? as this lair? T'lhe lie outlay for pavemeata in tie three wards will stand or thus: to First ward with 293 voters, as shewn by the last ,y mayoralty election, but sending 4 aildermen to the ad eouncil, $74,740 62. The second ward with 250 Iy voters and 3 aldermen, $97,376 85; while the third, ... ! AJt a t .0y, dRln!ehere arealrah y two paved t. streets, the New Levee and lehoupitoulas streets, n. leadrg lp to tile city line, and cornected with the er Levee by stone pavemerrt and gunwale ways where a. all tihri unportant trade of the ward is located. a. While in tile first ward, with all its large popula. Lion, its irrrrenae improvements, and great traffic, I there is out one single paved way through, not a at single doceat street by which lte abode of the dead can 'ba approached; nor to tihe Charity Hoadpr.l, ry the urapensera f health, nor to tihe Gus Waorea ire at funitam of hight; no, they are nlegicted tfr a street a ewithout eO..Iarrr ce, and pavelunte are denied h where w bad weather these important points are I unapproachable by a carrrage, although their want it may hbe tal to the liesn of thoauands and the com. d nercr jeoillorn. Sin 1l21, 2 and 3the City Council passed varieus Ordinances, agreeing to receive all paryng etoues Slanded on the Levee, at from $2 5J to $3 75 per tor,, each ton being equal to 3 1.2 square yards ot pavenlsnt, annu i two years they were so inrundatad II that they had to pass another ordinance forbidding ei the landing of aoy more paving stones for tihe us of tle norporation. is It now, the Council of the 2d Municipality will sa pass an ordinance to receive all block pavrrg stones, si of positive dimensions, at three dollars and fifty centrs per yard, in one year there would be a sufficenrr quantity to commence witll that pave. ulent after tLie present contract with MSr. Ilrturon l has expired, and so remove the objections of tire n !najprty of' the streets arrnd i.rrrdgs eounnittee, Fr .lat rquare bloeks cannot be had in time. I ami :ovirlced thl.t this opinion is aoll fLuneod, tro sn trlu M.icl of tlhe resolution of the-`onelri Iil 1021, .and I haOv thin additijona proof of its pracetcau lay Iay, that hI ghly reaSlnsiblo men have arerirvy ol.ired , to furnids the atone at $3 50 per rquare yard, in large quantities; but this former plan would place the matter beyond a doubt, and at the same time give to all men equal advantages; and notice should be given by public advertisement of the intention and wishes of the Council to obtain 86,000 square yards of cubic blooks, and for the furnishing nad laying 80,000 square yards of hexagonal blocks of wood. If, therefore, as I think is here clearly proved, round stones cannot be procured quicker than granite blocks, or hexagonal wood;-if, as here abundantly shown, the present style of pavement is not cheaper than that which I seek to substitute for it, there can be no reason which a patriot should acknowledge,or a public functionary regard, why the blocks should not be sought for, and the pebbles abolished. The contractors for the proposed pavement will receive pay in the same bonds given to him who supplies the materials used at present; and as it is perfectly clear that the difference of price in thle former is not one.fburth the extra expense of the latter, economy, not less than im. provement, calls loudly for the proposed change. When the citizens generally become aware of the onerous taxation they have suffered, and still suffer, from the 'egielation of men abundantly conscious of the load, and alone capable of removing it, they mnst be cursed with more than the monost r' blind. neeso net to rail at those who could help them under their aofliction yet would not. JAMEIS H CALWELL, Alderman, slt Ward, S. cod Municipality. SPolylhebme. ( We publish to-day the statement of Mr. Van Ostern, on the subject of his expulsion from the Battalion of Artillery, and with it the two letters of eitation, and condemnation, connected with it. We publish them because we deem the whole affair a high handed, and objectionable mes. sure; and so convinced sre we that our fellow ci tizens agree with us in opinion, that a gentleman, similarly situated with Mr. Van Ostern, has been admitted into one of our military companies, as distinguished for high and honorable, spirit as ever was the Battalion of Artillery. We open our co lumns to this matter from the conviction of the injustice done to Mr. Van Ostern, and two others, by their former associates; nor are we to be de, terred from publication by all the black looks, and angry words, of those our proceedings may offend" We are American citizens, well knowing nor own laws, and fully determined to support them: we wield an tndependent press, and will use it to expose error, in despite of the noisy threats that if we dare to publish these letters we shall not live twenty four hours.

The company as will be seen by the advertisement present an unusual ar ray of names, yet we learn that there are many moreartists engaged than are there enumerated. Mad'lle Revennot, a dancer of great beauty, and much reputation will make her appearance on lMondayand though the orchestra is not yet com plete, a large and eficient, portion of it will be there to perform the "national airs," and two bril liant overtures. The dramatic pieces will be the musical drama ofi"No Song, noSupper," with the farce of "aFomily Jars" and a new dance by Mad'll Itavennot. Pairemente.-We particularly call attention to the publication ol Mr.Caldwell, in which hetstres his reasons for advocating tile esubtitution of granite, or wood, blocks for pebbles, or round stones, as materials for paring our streets. The document is every way deserving the calmest at. tention, for its subject is one in which all are deeply interested: to the present generation as well as the next, to the drayman as to the merchant, to the property holder or the merest casual visitor, this important item in public improvements is of the first consequence. sly Editors in suit.

News! news! TO TE PUBLIC. eat surmises injurious to my eharacter be made by my fellow.citizens in relation to my expulsion from the Battalion of Artillery of the Louisiana Legion, I think it a duty to myself and friends to publish the two following letters on the subject, without further comment than this: Agreeably to the citation contained in the first, I attended the assembly of the Committee at the Mayoralty, and met the accusation preferred against me, declaring it utterly false, and demanding proof. Failing to substantiate the charge, although trivial and ridiculous in itself, the eommitaee broke up with. out coming to a decision, but re.formed in the bask room of the guard house, to which I was denied access, and there resolved on the verdict of expulsion contained in the second letter. Will thlisjudgment exclude me from admission to any equally honorable eorps, should I desire it' I feel assured it will not: nor do I believe my fellow-ciltiena will respect me any the lees, for the verdict thus pronounced against me by the Battalion of Artillery.
